Interlibrary loan is only available for items published at least 6 months ago that are not in the collection of New Providence Memorial Library (NPML). Only New Providence residents may request interlibrary loans. There is a limit of 3 interlibrary loans per resident, at any point in the ILL process. Interlibrary loans usually take 10 days to two weeks to arrive. You will be notified by e-mail when your loan arrives, or by phone if you do not have an e-mail address.
